Tom Petty’s widow and daughter, Dana York and Adria Petty, have come up with a beautiful idea.
Even through tremendous grief, Dana and Adria seem to know exactly how much Tom means to all of us and how truly heartbroken we were after losing him so suddenly last year. Every Petty fan I’ve spoken to said the same thing, “It feels like I lost a friend.”
The two ladies have set up a site to collect photos and videos submitted by fans. They’ll select some to be used in a new video for Tom Petty: An American Treasure, the new, career-spanning box set.
Dear Tom Petty Fans
We are making a very special music video in honor of
Tom Petty and his profound 40 year relationship with his
fans and we would love for you to help us.
We invite you to share your favorite moment with
Tom and the band.
A picture you took with Tom, a favorite video moment from a
show, or any expression of love for the band that you have
photographed and cherished.
